INSTALLATION

1. Run some water from the hot and cold faucets to flush the
water lines and remove particles that might clog up the
water valve screens.
2. Check inlet hoses to ensure the rubber washers are installed
in each end.
3. Carefully connect the inlet hoses to the water valve (on the
left side of the washer cabinet), tighten by hand, then tighten
another 2/3 turn with pliers.
DO NOT CROSS THREAD OR
CAUTION
OVERTIGHTEN THESE CONNECTIONS.
4. Determine which water faucet is the HOT water faucet
and carefully connect the bottom inlet hose to the HOT
water faucet, tighten by hand, then tighten another 2/3
turn with pliers. Carefully connect the top inlet hose to the
COLD water faucet, tighten by hand, then tighten another
2/3 turn with pliers.
DO NOT CROSS THREAD OR
CAUTION
OVERTIGHTEN THESE CONNECTIONS.
Turn the water on and check for leaks at both connections.
5. Carefully move the laundry center to its final location.
6. To ensure the laundry center is level and solid on all four
legs, tilt the laundry center forward so the rear legs are off
the ground. Gently set the laundry center back down to
allow the rear legs to self adjust. Place a level on top of the
washer. Check it side to side, then front to back. Screw
the front leveling legs up or down to ensure the laundry
center is resting solid on all four legs (no rocking of the
laundry center should exist).
NOTE: Keep the leg extension at a minimum to prevent
excessive vibration.
7. GAS CONNECTION (Gas laundry centers only)
a. Remove the shipping cap from gas pipe at the rear of the
dryer.
NOTE: DO NOT connect the laundry center to L.P. gas service
without converting the gas valve. An L.P. conversion kit must
be installed by a qualified gas technician.
b. Connect a 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) I.D. semi-rigid or approved
pipe from the gas supply line to the 3/8 inch (0.96 cm) pipe
located on the back of the dryer. Use a 1/2 inch (1.27 cm)
to 3/8 inch (0.96 cm) reducer for the connection. Apply an
approved thread sealer that is resistant to the corrosive
action of liquefied gases on all pipe connections.
c. Open the shutoff valve in the gas supply line.
d. Test all connections by brushing on a soapy water solution.
NEVER TEST FOR GAS LEAKS WITH AN OPEN FLAME.
8. Form a " U " shape on the end of the drain hose with the
hose pointed toward the drain. Place the formed end in a
laundry tub or a standpipe and secure with a cable tie
provided in the enclosure package.
W A TER WILL SYPHON FROM THE W ASHER IF THE ABOVE
INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT FOLLOWED.
9. Remove the two (2) screws securing the dryer front access
panel to the dryer cabinet. Lift the panel until the tabs can
be disengaged from the cabinet. Remove the panel and set
aside.
